bake sale goodies :: strawberry cupcakes

this saturday we had the second of 2 bake sales for bb's school. one in the fall and one in the spring. it seems to work out well! for this one i made these kick-ass strawberry muffins. i used this recipe and my only complaint is that i wish the cupcakes had more of a strawberry flavor. however, once the frosting is on i can see why the cakes are less strawberry-y. still. i craved more intense flavor.

i was delighted, of course, to have the underwear chef in the kitchen with me.


i also made Oatmeal Banana Muffins w/ Chocolate Chips and the Cookie Carnival cookie for this month-- hazelnut macaroon sandwiches. i've blogged about the muffins before on a different blog that i used to write on the Content Quake network (it says annie so-and-so posted it, but i assure you, it was me). this recipe is one of my absolute favorite muffin recipes. and when you make them with organic ingredients, fresh eggs from a local farm and with dark chocolate chips they are completely irresistible. i swear.

i'll post about the macaroons later on at round-up time, but let's just say this: me and these cookies did NOT get along. more on that later....
